Its good they have natural areas, you can see the animals, spiders, snakes and birds. Not that you can't see them in your back yards. But your back yards are landscaped. In the Scrub area its not so neat.

sort of an endless loop, trails, especially the sand ones are not well marked. Fairly sparse and few other runners, joggers, or hikers. Easy to do 5 miles without repeating a trail.

Better than watching paint dry or going to the dentist. BUt that's about it. Trails are rough, not much nature to see, and you hear the roar of the nearby traffic. Go to the beach instead

I biked through the area (which has nice paths throughout). It was a great place to get a little exercise and see a little nature at the same time. Iguanas along the river, fantastic bird life. Very nice area.

Worth doing - as a morning walk, or a longer hike, or a jog. Different length walking paths. Enjoyed exploring through the Yamato Scrub.

They have done little to change the landscape, which is what's good. Plus the fact its in an industrial park. It has trails and a bike trail, and trash cans. Around the trash is where I saw the most birds. You can spot some wildlife.
